He's Crawling!

Hey Everyone! Its Evans mommy. Dave and I are so excited... Evan is crawling just in time for Christmas! It is SO darn cute, too! He's not quite steady, but he gets to where he is wanting to go. I had to keep turning him away from the entertainment stand yesterday while we were on the floor wrapping presents. Evan is also starting to show some disappointment when something is taken away from him (like the remotes!).
Separation anxiety is also starting to kick in. Sometimes as soon as i leave the room, he is upset... but easily distracted.
We are so excited about Christmas. If the plans go as Gramma Shelton is wanting, we will all see Dave's cousins, on Sunday, so Charlotte and Evan will be able to meet again! Both of them sitting up next to each other is gonna be adorable!! Everyone get the camera's ready!!! Be back soon!

Santa

Well, i got to see Santa, and i gotta tell ya... it was a little frightening!! He was really nice and all, but a little scary looking! I got through it, though. He was at a holiday party I went to last weekend at the Ihlers. Mommy says, again, I was just PERFECT! We were all there for over 6 hours, and I didn't cry once. I took a little nap for Mommy & Daddy cause they had a rob your neighbor game to play, so after that I was ready to party again.

Im almost crawling now. Im on my hands and knees and I kinda rock back and forth, but Im just not too sure how to move the arms and legs in the right order quite yet. Give me another week or so, and Im gonna have run of the house! Im eating little puffs and crackers now. I really LOVE the biscuits! Seems Mommy only gives them to me before bath time, though. They do get really messy. Somehow I even manage to get them on my feet... don't ask me how!

Christmas time is so exciting. Lots of gifts all around, and pretty lights! I just cant wait. Im sure there will be new food to try, too... which is my FAVORITE thing!

6 Months Old!!

I know... I can't believe it either! Six months already. So much is going on these days. Im sitting completely unsupported now. Just in time for my half birthday. I didnt have it quite down on Thursday, but Friday I had it figured out! And according to Mommy... my first word is ba ba. Which I know as food. I've been saying it for a couple weeks now, and she keeps trying to correct me and say MaMa, but why would I call my bottle MaMa???
I just love being in my play pen. I can reach or roll to all my toys. Sometimes I have my blankie in there with me and just take a little nap.
Giving kisses is fun too! I will grab Mommys face and pull it to mine, then give her a big wet open mouth kiss!! She just laughs, then wipes her face on my shirt! Ill let you all know when im crawling!

New Tricks

Hi everyone! I wanted to thank everyone that voted for me in the contest. I didnt win, but mommy did get the CD of pictures from my photo shoot! Thats good enough for her!

I've got a few new tricks to fill ya in on... Ive been rolling all over the place these days, and scootin around. Lately I've been able to get my toes in my mouth, and just love munchin on them. Believe it or not, I am doing very well with sittin unsuported! I loose my balance a bit, but mommy is always there to catch me.

I have a new baby sitter now, too. I start tomorrow with mommys cousin Mrs Lori! She lives really close to us, and has a boy about my age. I think we are all gonna be great friends! I'll have some new pictures up soon!

Vote For Me!

We had a good weekend... I got to see my Aunt Jennifer! She was so happy to see me. I was a bit under the weather, but stayed happy for a while for her. She got tons of pictures, we played on the floor, and talked together. Then yesterday I got to spend the whole day with Gramma. It was a good day!
Mommy says soon I'll be able to sit up on my own. That will be exciting!

Oh, I almost forgot! Mommy and Gramma took me to The Mills and got my picture taken for the St Louis's Most Photogenic Baby Contest. You can vote for me on Oct 24th and 25th from 10am -7pm at The Mills Mall, located by the food court. The cost is $0.50 per vote, and all the proceeds benefit the Children's Miracle Network. If you feel like doin a little shoppin, stop by and vote for me!! Thanks!

4 Months

Dr Appointment

As you all know, I went to the Doctor Friday. I weighed 16 lbs 2 oz!! I know.. I couldn't believe it either! I also got a few shots which weren't so bad. I didn't even shed a tear. Then my mommy stayed home with me all day Friday, and Monday. That was nice. We got new pictures taken yesterday, too. Mommy says I was just perfect AGAIN!
Im still sleeping well, about 11 to 12 hours a night. I like my sleep, just like Daddy! Soon Im gonna try more foods like Vegetable Beef and Chicken dinners. Im excited about that! I'll let ya know how it goes! See you soon!

I rolled over yesterday!

Yup, I did it! I was close Sunday in my crib, but last night mommy had a rattle in front of me, and I followed it as she went higher, and higher... then, boom! I was on my back! Mommy and Daddy were so happy, then they got that darn camcorder out again. So I did it two more times for the camera. It was pretty cool. Mommy says I will be crawling in no time!

I Think Im Talking!

Hey everyone! I wanted to give an update on my going-ons. I'm just lovin' all the new foods I get to try these days. My momma keeps telling me how FAT I am, but she just keeps the food coming til I'm in a 'food coma' as she calls it. She just can't keep her hands of my thighs! I just laugh, squeel, and razz back.
She has to be careful these days, cause whatever is in my reach goes in my mouth. Ive even put my binki in by myself! (I think it was an accident, though) I love sittin up in my Bumbo. I get to look around and see everything goin on. As you all know, I'm goin to the Dr in a couple weeks--not lookin forward to that though cause I get more shots. Oh well, gotta do it. Ill be back soon!

Bananas!

Wow!! Mommy gave me bananas yesterday. They were SOOOO good!! And I ate them off a spoon. It took a couple tries before I got the hang of it, but then she couldn't get the spoon in my mouth fast enough! It was a nice treat for my 3 month birthday.

New Pictures

3 Months Now

Well, we all got our pictures taken!! Mommy and Daddy tried to steal the show, but I was cuter than both of them! I went to the Doctor today too, and i weighed 14 lbs 10 oz!! Thats the 79th percentile. Some of my clothes are already 6-9 months!
I just got over my 1st cold too. Just a runny nose, coughing, and some sneezing. Not too terrible... and Mommy took extra special care of me! I think my cold bothered her more than me!
Well, hope you guys like our pictures. See ya soon!

Hello Internet World!

Well here I am everyone!! I saw my cousin Charley's page the other day, and thought it was such a cool idea, I decided to make one myself. I am about 11 1/2 weeks old now and I'm almost 14 lbs, and 24 in. Im gettin big so fast, my mommy had to put me on real food! I've had squash and sweet potatoes so far. (I like the sweet potatoes better!) She said i cant have the good fruits until I've tried all the veggies. (She doesn't even eat the crap she gives me!!)
I've heard rumors about gettin my 3 month pictures taken next week, and I'm very excited about that. I just LOVE being in front of the camera. I even smiled for every picture at my 4 week appointment!
Well, I think I need my pants changed, so I better get goin. I'll be back real soon!!

Still a bottle boy...
